    Average company at best, many opportunities.....some less advantageous than others.

    Current Employee - Security Officer in Silver Spring, MD (US)

    I have been working at AlliedBarton part-time (less than a year)


    Good/acceptable starting pay at certain sites, you can't argue with being a floater at 2 sites and getting paid 12.18 at one and 12.50 at another, however the work itself gets depressing at times for a broke college kid.


    •No jumps in salary/average pay.
    •Incompetent and lackluster supervisors (Captains & Lieutenants are lazy doofuses)
    •Lack of supplemental supervisors (no extra ranks like Sgt./Cpl./ etc.)
    Lack of good equipment (Cheap Radios, •Poor quality uniforms, and apparently; we aren't allowed to carry cuffs/mace/batons so it's already a downside to work "unarmed security" with them)
    •A power hungry ex-cop account manager who is ill-equipped to run the job, let alone know what private security really should be.
    •Gossip...a lot of it....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    •increase wages, stop cutting the officer's value salaries in half so corporate can take a cut.
    •Change the rules for the company and stop making site by site exceptions and let your officers be well equipped for the high-risk job they've taken; let them carry cuffs, mace, a baton, flashlight, on their belts even if they provide it on their own cause you will never know when they'll need it, they're no...WE are out in the field daily, and encounter incidents which warrant them but we don't carry anything; we respond with what we have at our disposal, our hands and a radio.....fix this....
    •Allow for a wider rank structure; I'm not saying go paramilitary like some security companies but give the officers something to be proud of.
    •get better non-illiterate supervisors.
    •Provide better uniforms, provide company patrol cars to mobile/flex sites instead of renting golf carts & increase wages!

    Neutral Outlook
